Any evangelical reading this will have a fit, and conservatives quite possibly likewise, but what a well-written and thoroughly researched book. I do so enjoy a book that entertains by its style.

Wikipedia lists some 30 documentaries made by the author of this book, and links to the NZ Film Archive, so his credentials there are well established. This book is written as an investigation, and the chapter headings take us through the order of this. Here are some examples:

I loved this book right from the first sentence. Bryan Bruce examines many aspects of the death of Jesus. From whether or not we can believe the gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John to researching historical documentation on some of the people said to be around at the time. He looks at the customs, the people, the area and comes to a conclusion that was not really so startling at all if you are really open to the fact that maybe the Bible was written as a PR spin for Christians.
